    I removed a vintage air unit and replaced it with an original 40. I didn't want the original outlets to be in the center of the firewall on top of the SBF engine. I found that 1/2 copper pipe and fittings work perfectly on the original water outlets. I thought I had a better close up of the heater but I cant find it. Its painted the same two tone as the dash.

    Got the rough looking old heater freshened up and ready for an install. May not be too pretty, but at least I will be warmer than not having one. image000000.jpg
     
  7. Heater pass.jpg I used the 1/2 copper fittings to re-route hoses for my Vintage air/heat unit. The couplings for the copper fittings, are good size for 5/8 heater hose, which is used on my engine. I've attached a picture of the interior side of hose pass-through I built then(25 years ago!) Copper pipe was brazed to piece of sheet steel. On engine side, I soldered the couplings, which the heater hose fits on.

    With reversed firewall and a recess as well, really didn't have room for a heater under the dash, but regulations stated that I had to have defrost for the windshield. Modified this heater to draw air from the floor and duct it up to vent louvers at bottom of windshield. Has two 2 1/2" computer fans inside with a two speed switch. Rear housing is custom made with louvers on the bottom, front is original with wrinkle paint and polished aluminum, knobs are polished stainless.

  9. Old Tropic Aire I reworked the case, fitted with a late model core, computer fan, and had the case powder coated in an industrial wrinkle finish.
